I got the Ski bug Today!!!!

Last week a friend asked me if I wanted to go skiing today (sunday) because they knew i was interested in trying my hand at skiing.   At first I said wasnt interested in going up just for a day as it seemeed awefully complex.   Then another friend said she was going up and i though "this could work if we all ski together"  The cogs ticked over and I ended up booking a bus trip up.

The bus left Ringwood at 0600 Sunday morning, got to Mansfield at 0900 and then left there at 1000 and got to the mountain just before 11am

I would just like to say that after exactly 20 years of not skiing (went this time of year in 1987)  I still can ski better than many of the intermediate skiers *blows nails in a proud  way*.   Mind you.   Many of the intermediate skiers were way better than i was.   however i could quite happily parelall turn and snow plough  and power stop and work my way through the queues with more or less no problems at all, and I could more or less navigate my way down the Blue runs with no significant problems.   ... other than the odd expleative as I discovered that the blue run we were on had the odd very steep drop which i wasnt prepared for.

I will go back.. One of the people I skied with is going back in a  few weeks time and I will see if I can join her as they have access to a ski lodge.

I just have to rememeber:  MORE sunscreen and seriously tape my knee. as it is REALLY sore..

Now I'm tired and sore (oh so very sore)

I HAD THE BESTEST DAY
